Loved this story! James is a great writer - I loved how he unfolded the characters to us in the first chapter, it kept me wondering just who they were and how they were related, as he bit by bit filled in the gaps. And the craftsmanship continues throughout the book as he tells his story, both by what is written and what is left unsaid.
Lee Ann Howlett does an excellent job of reading this solo project.
